Overview

This colorfully illustrated multicultural children's book presents an entertaining story from the Philippines that teaches an important lesson about self esteem.

A heart-warming story of a young Filipino girl who builds self-confidence after spending a day with her classmates, Pan de Sal Saves the Day: A Filipino Children's Story is an award-winning inspiring tale for young children everywhere. It's the story of a young girl named Pan de Sal who lives in the Philippines and thinks she's the unluckiest girl in the whole world. Aside from not liking her own name and finding her appearance strange, she doesn't have all the fancy things her classmates have. She can't even muster the courage to try out for the Glee Club, even though she has a beautiful voice.

Things change suddenly when an unexpected event forces her into the limelight. With her innate talent and resourcefulness, Pan de Sal wins admiration of her classmates and finds the confidence she needs to fulfill her dreams.

For anyone who has ever felt like an outsider or experienced adversity, Pan de Sal Saves the Day teaches children to see the unique qualities in everything and everyone, even themselves.

    Good book for kids

    Culture-oriented book, appropriate for kids in the early grade school perhaps. The names of the characters are derived from foods, which represents the character's background. If you're not familiar, PAN DE SAL (pandesal) is a very common breakfast bread in the Philippines.
